1. Competition Period. The Competition commences on Wednesday 14 June 2017 at 09:00 AEST and closes on Friday 17 November 2017 at 17:00 AEST (“Competition Period”). Sponsor’s computer is the official time-keeping device for the Competition. All entries must be received during the Competition Period. This is a contest of skill.
2. Eligibility Requirements.
a. Entry into the Competition is open to any full-time employee of any media agency, creative agency, or marketing agency incorporated in Australia (employees of a sole trader are not eligible) (each, a “Qualified Agency”) who is: (i) 18 or more years of age, (ii) a resident of Australia, and (iii) employed by a Qualified Agency for the duration of the Competition Period. Notwithstanding the foregoing, employees and the immediate family members of Sponsor and Focal Attractions Pty Ltd, and their associated agencies and companies, or any organisation or individual associated with the provision of the Prize (described below), are ineligible to enter.
b. The Competition is subdivided into two categories: (i) “Agency Influencer”, and (ii) “New Comer Agency Influencer” (each, a “Competition Category”). In addition to the eligibility requirements set forth in section 2(a) above, to be eligible for the New Comer Agency Influencer category, the entrant must not have worked in one or more of the media, creative, or marketing industries for more than a combined total of five years. Entrants are only eligible to compete in one Competition Category. If an entrant enters both Competition Categories, LinkedIn may, in its sole discretion, disqualify the entrant from one or both categories. In the event of a discrepancy, the total number of years an entrant has worked in a media, creative, or marketing industry will be determined by LinkedIn in its sole discretion.
3. How to Enter. To enter into the Competition, each eligible entrant (“Entrant”) must satisfy the following requirements:
a. Register at Microsite by June 13 2017;
b. Publish at least one post on LinkedIn’s website (www.linkedin.com); and
c. Engage with content and members on LinkedIn’s website. Each Entrant’s level of engagement will be determined by LinkedIn based on a weighted scoring made up from such Entrant’s total number of profile views, new connections, endorsements, post frequency, post page views, post engagements, share frequency, and share engagements (collectively, “Engagement Score”) over the duration of a given month during the Competition Period. Engagement Scores will be determined by LinkedIn based solely on LinkedIn’s records.

Mumbrella, (“Mumbrella Site”) the leader boards (each, a “Leader Board”) for each Competition Category and the top ten Entrants with the highest Engagement Score in such month.
5. Winner Selection. At or near the end of the Competition Period, LinkedIn will select one Competition winner for each Competition Category (each, a “Winner”) based on each Entrant’s Engagement Score over the course of the Competition Period. Each Winner will be notified by phone and/or email and his or her details will be published by Sponsor on the Microsite and/or Mumbrella Site after the expiration of the Competition Period. All reasonable attempts will be made to contact each Winner. If a Prize remains unclaimed by a Winner, or is forfeited for any reason, by Wednesday 22 November 2017 at 10:00 AEDT, the Prize will be reallocated to the next valid Entrant, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.
